Friday Bits of Tid - Birth of Brickyard Edition

The planet has ceased to warm, the seas have receded and balance has been restored to the universe. In other words, Friday Bits of Tid is back! I just hope I can remember how to do this...

On this day in 1909, automotive engineer Louis Schwitzer won the two-lap, five-mile inaugural race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The rest, as they say, is history, a long and prestigious one.

As you may recall, I have cited one piece of awful legislation as the root cause of the housing market meltdown. I'm not the only one who noticed, Ed Driscoll of PJ Media has too.

Since it worked so well the last time, President Obama blames ATM's for the economic downturn again.

Remember when you took that European vacation a few years ago? When you got to rub elbows with some of the world's richest people and dated that supermodel during the best two months of your life? Um, that was a commercial: Ads implant fake memories in your head.

Dogs of Math.

German boy complains to police about doing housework. Methinks the police would have been justified if they had spanked him.

Motorized beer cooler lands driver in court for, well, you'll never guess in a million, zillion years.

Digital nipples.

Man steals, then returns children. I see one of two possible scenarios: either the kids were such a pain that he wanted to return them, or they just kept asking, "Are we there yet?" incessantly until the thief finally gave up.

What happens to butter before it gets fried at a state fair.

I've long suspected that progressives were bred in a secure facility in order to protect the general population from infestation. Now I have proof: Doctors grow replacement sphincters.

Here's a screamer from just a few months ago, How can we not love Obama? Let me count the ways...

And finally, Ace contributed this video, he just doesn't know it...


Have a good weekend, y'all.

The loving Obama article had to be a satire. Please tell me it was written with sarcasm. There is absolutely no way anyone would write that article just one month ago and still have a career if it was serious.

I'm not sure if it was satire or not, but it's a laugh riot either way.

OTOH, if he was serious, he's only one among many who tongue-bathe Obama daily and get paid for it.
